This is a set of instructions for building a snowflake ornament with a rivoli captured in the center. I like to play with color, so I created an ombre pattern with different shades of blue. Then, I made a steampunk version. There are both versions in these instructions, with multiple color options for each. I illustrate how to lay out the color in two different ways. I also lay out how to make this ornament in four different sizes with four different rivolis: 16mm, 14mm, 12mm, and 10mm.

This tutorial assumes that you can weave byzantine, or at least have some familiarity with it. If you don’t know this weave, there are free resources which can help you learn it. Chainmail 101 has a free tutorial, and also has plenty of resources. If you are new to byzantine, I recommend that you make the standard sized ornament first before trying any of the variations.

This tutorial has been tested with anodized aluminum rings from The Ring Lord and Chainmail Joe. Rings from The Ring Lord tend to give a looser weave than rings from Chainmail Joe. The tighter the snowflake is, you might need to use a smaller Rivoli. I indicate areas where you can make these adjustments.
